Research Areas
  • Electronic technology and of the communications

Proyecto europeo del FP7 con 12 socios, de los que la UPM es coordinador, para el desarrollo de diversas líneas de investigación que permitan una mayor penetración de los sistemas fotovoltaicos en las redes eléctricas europeas. Sus principales líneas de investigación (en inglés): 1) Robust modelling, advanced simulation and design optimization: through an open source, simulation and design toolbox incorporating built-in learning tools 2) Prediction of system output with respect to solar resource, local weather and system behaviour: including prediction and mitigation of PV power fluctuations 3) Integration of energy management and storage strategies: using innovative batteries and allowing PV to participate in the secondary regulation of the grid. 4) Monitoring, real time follow-up and advanced diagnoses of performance: providing performance analyses including the detection of hidden problems reducing operational costs. 5) Hardware, software and contractual solutions for field and laboratory testing: developing kit solutions for the commissioning of PV plants and BIPV.
